The Audacity of Despair

In piecing together past events of my life, I was forced to relive things I cared not to, and things I wish I could experience once more. Through it all, no matter what emotions overcame me, my mind remained focus on the truth. So much of my story has been told by others, especially the media. A close friend of mine reached out and demanded that the streets hear from me. When I began to think of telling my story and actually writing it, I realized that my story was the story of millions. The choices I’ve made may be unique in their own right, yet there lies an alarming degree of similarity in the surrounding circumstances.
